Melaya leff

A melaya is a large, black shawl in which the women will wrap themselves for modesty as they leave their home. Melaya Leff is a dance created for the theatre stage which depicts the life of the women from Alexandria, Egypt. The dance shows how the women use the melaya to bring attention to themselves, which is in contradiction to the supposed purpose of the shawl.
